Library Loot

Library Loot is a weekly event that is co-hosted by Marg and Eva.
...encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.

And here are my goodies:

I read the first two books of this series by Lauren Royal, but never got around to reading this one. Couldn't resist picking it up when I saw it in the staff pick shelf.

I haven't read a Cathy Maxwell book in a very long time, so I'm looking forward to reading this one. I think it's part of a series though, so I may have to get my hands on the previous books before I can read it.

I couldn't resist this one, either. Notice the cover? Yep. I particularly don't like these types of covers, but the blurb sounded interesting...and in the book bag it went.

I'm reading Coraline for a couple of reasons: part of a challenge and my daughter wants to read it as well, we're doing a mother-daughter reading book club later in the month with a group of friends.

Sophester wants to start reading this series, but before I give her the okay, I'm checking it out. I'm sure she'll enjoy it, but she always has a lot questions and I want to be prepared.

I read Sheila Roberts' Love In Bloom, which I truly enjoyed. I'm looking forward on reading Angel Lane.

Okay, this I chose for its cover. Isn't it gorgeous? And the blurb wasn't bad either. It's about an unlikely friendship between a young girl and an old fisherman. And it's set in Ireland.

This book was on the hold shelf for me, and for the life of me I cannot remember placing it on hold. But I'll give it a try. Looks interesting enough.

My daughter loves this movie and I didn't realize there was a book. I'm reading for a challenge as well. And you never know Sophester may want to read it as well.

Oh my goodness! This book is huge! Another challenge read...Wish me luck! lol

You can join in the fun by visiting here.

Nice loot! I never watched the Ella Enchanted movie, but I absolutely *loved* the book, so I hope you enjoy it. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is another one I enjoyed, although I agree, it is *huge*. I hope you have fun with your loot!

You have an interesting mix of loot there!

I am always glad to see someone else with romance on their loot posts!
